I've become a huge fan of Demain Publishing over the years with their Short Sharp Shocks Series of little bites of horror and now it's time for me to check out their Murder! Mystery! Mayhem! Series.
This time I'm reading The Bone Factory by Yolanda Sfetsos! In the crime ridden city of Lorn, ruled over by corrupt power and patriarchy, a young woman, Max Patella is trying to solve crimes the police don't want to touch.
Whenever something weird goes down, Max Patella gets a call, and her latest case may be the strangest one she will ever have to deal with.
Inside the Dollhouse, a skeleton is discovered, it's presumed to be accidental but when the bones start to speak, Max knows otherwise. It's not long until more skeletons pop up, all within factories, all with strange rings.
No one cares about these victims, all women, and Max battles against time to find the culprit before more vulnerable women are slain.
I really liked this tale. A great murder mystery tale with elements of fantasy. It's a tale I could definitely see continuing. The characters are great and I'd love to read more about their escapades.
